The Pentagon recently outlined a new defense strategy for the United States emphasizing a focus on the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions. This promises a continued reliance on unmanned aircraft system (UAS ) technology for the foreseeable future. In his brief, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta specifically noted the Air Force will “provide unmanned capabilities” and “global strike and persistent ISR” as they continue building towards 65 Combat Air Patrols (CAPs) – with surge capability to 85 CAPs – and procure additional unmanned aircraft such as the Global Hawk Block 40. Meanwhile the Navy – a big component in the Asia-Pacific region – will continue with their unmanned programs including BAMS, Fire Scout, UCAS, etc. and the Army and Marine Corps will do likewise with the Gray Eagle, STUAS and cargo UAS programs among others. Globally, international procurement will also remain strong continuing the UAS era.
